I will leave them in there with the tote covered while I feed everyone else so they really smell rat then feed them last. Most everyone is eating by this point. For the holdouts live is required. Once they begin eating again they are usually pigs and will eat anything that comes their way. For the females that are super skinny I will put them on a four day schedule until they don't look anorexic.

    BTW, glad you are back.

    Getting close now !!!
    Clutch was actually laid on Jun 22 second so day 60 would be Monday, August 21st.
    Same day than the solar eclipse

    Eggs have started to collapse a bit 2 days ago, but not very much yet. Sometimes I stare at them for a while and I swear I see a little "twitch".
    Since I waited so long to breed after buying these "morphs" I know they aren't that exciting anymore, but its still very exciting for me just because its the first "planned" clutch and from my own animals.
    The only other clutch I took care off was a surprise from a rescue snake way back.

    So..how do you all keep from staring at the eggs every chance ? Haha...

    I'm not going to cut to see what's in there. If anything I'll wait until the first pip or day 60. But the wait is getting to me

    After those eggs I still have the ones from the Pastel Lesser that should pip around Sept. 11th.

    And still waiting on one clutch to be laid from the Pastel Enchi, around Sept. 6th or so. She is running late

    I know

    I should just put a chair and a bottle of beer in front of the incubator. I can stare into it all day long, LOL !!! I will probably get a heart attack once something actually happens.

    I know, I know. Its not that special..haha. And I have raised one clutch before.

    But this is different. This is from snakes I have raised since they've been itty bitty!

    It's always cool when you raise them up from hatchlings to their first clutch

    and we have takeoff !!!

    First little head poking out today

    Looks like it may be a Super Pastel ? Its something more then a pastel, I think. (Breeding is Bumblebee + Super Blast)

    I'm terrified of causing twisted umbilicus when messing around with the eggs to much, so should I cut slits into the rest of them now, or give it a bit more time, like until this one is out and safe?

    A very blurry pic...

    Re: Guess what...

    I've never cut and so far I have only ever lost one baby to a twisted umbilicus. If everything hasn't pipped within 24 to 30 hours of the first one, then you may want to cut. Other than that, the less disturbance, the better is my philosophy. Best of luck.
